Hummingbird teaches us the medicinal properties of plants and how to work with the energy of flowers to heal ourselves and others. Hummingbirds teach us fierce independence. They teach us to fight in a way where no one gets hurt. They teach us courage.
The fluttering wings of the hummingbird move in the pattern of an infinity symbol – further solidifying their symbolism of eternity, continuity, and infinity.
By observing the Hummingbird, we see they are seemingly tireless. Always actively seeking the sweetest nectar, they remind us to forever seek out the good in life and the beauty in each day. Some Hummingbirds are known to migrate as far as 2000 miles to reach their destination. This quality reminds us to be persistent in the pursuit of our dreams, and adopt the tenacity of the Hummingbird in our lives.
The Toltec’s tradition from Mesoamerica prophesies that with the advent of the Sixth Sun “The energy will rise up as a snake that passes through all our energy centers, the snake will transform itself into a sacred bird, into a Hummingbird and will fly upwards, causing our awakening; in the Sixth Sun, who knows how to transform his/her luminous energy into vitality and beauty, thus making the snake rise up to the point to transforming itself into a Hummingbird or an Eagle, is capable of flying up to the purest form of consciousness.”
